Fewer marry in church? Good


THE number of couples opting for a church wedding has dropped to an all-time low. I am invited to lament this but instead feel tempted to cheer. It will be a good day when the only people to marry in church are those who believe in holy matrimony and in its indissolub­ility rather than those who merely want some sort of fancy dress parade in a quaint setting accompanie­d by the melodious refrain of pealing bells.
